Articuno Papercraft by Aosou-kun Articuno Papercraft by Aosou-kun
After a very long wait and many difficulties, I finally completed thepapercraftcouple's Articuno model.
It will need to dry its tack welds overnight, but should hold together.
I ended up taking over a month to do it and suffered losing a toe and putting the legs on the wrong sides, BUT! it stands before you and I now, a trophy of my patience and ingenuity.

I now own 2 of my favorite pokemon of all time.
The other is Lugia.
Of all the models I've completed, this was the hardest, and I would not recommend my version of it. It will be redesigned in the future.

Hi there! Do you still have the templates? It is not existing anymore on papercraft museum... Although your assembling skills are amazing!

I checked my flash drives and I couldn't find this variant on them.
I'll see if I can find the original creators and ask them for it.
I checked out their dA page. They removed all their models from the next 2 years ago due to copyright.
The model is out of print.

Well, that's interesting and that's a shame too... Their other models would have been as good as this one I think.
Thank you for having a look in your flash drives! Wink/Razz

No problem. Paperpokes's Flying Articuno is much easier anyway. I recommend giving it a shot.
I mean I built PC's Articuno, in fact I was one of the few who did, but it was poorly unfolded and needlessly complicated for such a simple looking model.

I don't have it on my computer anymore, only the PaperPokes one.
I might have it on one of my flashdrives but I have no idea where they are right now (my room's a mess).
Thank you though. I'll let you know if I find it.

Designing these things to be made of paper is the real trick.
I just so happened to make the test build for the Papercraft Couple (so I've been told).
It was a pain, I don't recommend this version, but if they have the new one out...let me know.

(I'll know if it hasn't changed)

and thank you for your support.

Papercraft Museum should still have the link, but I'm warning you, it's a pain because it's so small and the feet are really hard to make.

Glad to hear, it was a pain to make.
Too small for me.

Hey guys, been a while. I'm looking back on this model and I'm amazed I still have it.
It has survived a move and a hyperactive kitten playing with it, barely any worse for wear.

I'm actually about to complete a 130% scale version of Paperpokes' Flying Articuno model.
It's really nice, recommend checkin it out.
I'll be posting it on this site when I finsh.

I've been papercrafting for about a year now.
In that year I've done about 26 models, most of them pokemon.
I started with Wingull and Articuno is my most recent one.

The wings weren't bad, the body was okay except for closing, and the tail was simple, but the feet were awful to build.
They are very small and the parts don't make a whole lot of sense, if I didn't have the pdo and a lot of experience with these, I'd have never completed it.
